Acrobatic winter steelhead arrive shortly after the fall Chinook. These hard fighting chrome bullets typically start making their appearance in good numbers around Thanksgiving. From beads to jigs or bobber doggin’ to plugs, these fish are some of the most fun fish to catch all year! We target winter steelhead in the Wilson, Trask, Kilchis, & Nestucca rivers. (Dec-April)

Two of the rivers we fish provide opportunity for you to give back to the river system in the form of Broodstock wild steelhead! If we are fishing one of these rivers and we catch a healthy wild steelhead, we will safely transport the fish in a live well (stored in my boat) back to the hatchery where they will spawn the fish and release them back to the wild to continue their journey. Typically the fish raised from the Broodstock wild steelhead are much larger and a harder fighting fish.

Let's go steelhead fishing!
